improve much. a pattern going as we're well below speed. southbound 270 lanes are open but an hour commute coming southbound from 85 heading into german town. traffic slows again. you'll find if you are traveling metro's red line, this is where we have problems. they are single tracking because of an earlier issue. now we've got delays out in shady grove road. metro's red line troubles to deal with. out on the roads the top stretch of the beltway below speeds trying to get past university. northbound i 95 and 395 a tough commute. delays from court house road. as you make your way out towards the beltway. we can take that live shot. inner loop of the beltway slowing back in. all of the lanes there are open. there you go.

7:05am
for them to go after the un ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and to smerch her reputation is outrageous. >> interesting to say something that juvenile not picking on anyone. as we just said four americans died. is that picking on anybody when you want to place responsibility? >> reporter: and those hearings begin at 10:15 in the house. maryland congressman who is the top says he doesn't expect the subject of patraeus's resignation and the whole affair will probably come up in today's hearing. >> thank you. >> this morning we're learning

7:33am

7:35am
robert walker now executive chairman. always good to see you as well. i know we were talking about the fiscal cliff but what's dominating the headlines is general patraeus. and all of the players in this. we've already been there. i want to talk about what's ahead with the hearings with regard to libya. he will testify. marty, let me start with you . your impressions leading up to all of this and now are we getting to the knitty gritty. >> what's happening is it's more important is what did he find out? that's critical for us to know exactly what happened. we still don't have all the facts about what exactly took place. we need to find that out. it's important to get it done. i'm glad to see he's coming back to testify. >> we're looking here at his alleged mistress. have we passed the point as to whether
7:36am
she has connection with national intelligence? >> it's pretty clear there isn't a national security problem. it was more a personal issue. so i agree put it to the side and let's go on and talk about something that's important, the american people and national security. >> was there ever a thought that he wouldn't come forward to testify in your mind when this story broke and with the hearings already scheduled? >> i thought at some point he would testify. in the initial going there was talk only the new acting head of the cia would come and testify. that was unacceptable to the hill and eventually everybody thought that they better have general patraeus go to the hill and talk about not only the investigation that he did but also the time line of what really took place there. we've had some confusing stories that i think there are people on the hill and people in the country that would like to
7:37am
know what happened. we lost four people and there have been a whole variety of stories about just exactly what happened of how it happened and when it happened. general patraeus is the one who can provide clarity to that. i think his appearance was essential. and i'm glad he's doing it earlier rather than later. >> my last question and we'll move on. it seems that congress members and two former congress members yourself, seem to be upset the fbi was doing this whole investigation or knew what he knew. and they weren't told. can you fill me in on the role of congress as a sitting body. might there be hearings into all of these e-mails between the top general in afghanistan and general patraeus and his biographer? what is the thinking there? >> sometimes members of congress get outraged for all the wrong
7:38am
reasons. the bottom line is the fbi was looking into something that could have been a national security risk. and i think until they finish their investigation, the question whether or not they need to inform congress depends on whether or not there's an intelligence breech. they found out there wasn't any. >> but there is a different standard for the people who serve on the intelligence committees and the congress in general. are supposed to be informed if there is a situation developing that could result in a national security breech. and this is a place where i think the chairman of the committee in the senate, in the house both believe they deserve to have information about an fbi investigation that was going on in the cia director. this is well with inside their wheelhouse. that is what you are hearing from congress. >> with two minutes left, i want to talk about another serious issue that's facing us.
7:39am
john boehner and mitch mcconnel said we want to compromise. don't want the american people to deal with what could be ahead. what is going on? we all think their backdoor meetings that get done. is that not the case? >> they are having those kind of meetings. they are going to have a meeting later on today with the members of congress with leadership. look, it's very clear we need to look something serious. send the message to the markets and the american people. this election pretty much laid out what the american people want. 80% of the american people want to compromise. both parties to work together. i don't know what it will take for these guys to wake up and realize that. we have to stop this negotiating i'm not going to do this. the only thing we know for sure is rates are going up for the
7:40am
wealthy. elections matter. he did win. >> i think what you have is a lot of posturing going on and it's posturing that takes you toward the negotiations that will take place. i would disagree with my friend marty that the rates have to go up. i think there's a compromise here that will assure there's additional revenue that comes from wealthy people by eliminating deductions. but a raise in tax rates will under mine the economy in significant ways. comes out of the hide of a lot of small businesses and the last thing we need at the present time is to make decisions about the fiscal cliff that take us toward another fiscal cliff next year because the economy deteriorates. there's a balance that needs to be done but a posturing gets those negotiations started. >> the nice thing about the
7:41am
president is he's putting lines in the sand. one of the things i respected ronald reagan for. he had three lines in the sand. i think the president has his line in the sand. >> okay. meantime, time is dwindling for all of us. marty and bob thanks for being with us. time has ended. we'll be right back .
7:42am
7:43am
7:44am
we're back now with stories making headlines across the nation. just days after a big win against alabama, some alarming news out of texas anm, thomas johnson is missing. the university's police department says johnson was last seen leaving his residence monday evening. he went to high school in dallas. police believe he may have traveled to that area. >> there is good news for college graduates in the coming year. expected to increase hiring of four year grads by about 5%. that is according to an annual survey by michigan

7:46am
>> how poetic. >> thank you. i tried. 43 in washington. 23 in columbus. never got the poetry . >> it can be nice. >> like haiku. let's take a look at the surface map. high pressure off to our north. this is going to keep us dry but we are going to do cloud cover down in the carolinas. this is going to continue to pressinto the area later today and tonight. and as it does so, it will have a tendency to give us more sunshine for fry into the weekend. that is generally good news. a nice weekend around here. saturday and sunday now look dry. it will be cool as our winds will still be out of the north. it will be dry for the weekend. 50 today. more clouds and sun . and right now friday, saturday look great. at least we'll be dry. >> the weekend has improved a

8:34am
roger hickey. and the co author calling on congress to be cautious about what they are willing to do to solve the fiscal crisis. good morning. glad you are here today. >> good morning. >> i'm so interested in the paper you presented congress. can you tell us about it in the findings? >> well, as you know congress has created this artificial cliff. sort of like the blazing saddles routine where a guy puts a gun to his head and say don't come or we'll shoot the economy. they are not going to push us over the cliff. there is going to be a solution to backing away from those mandatory cuts and tax increases. because nobody corporate america, nobody wants another recession. the question is what congress will do in order to avoid the cliff. what kind of agreements they
8:35am
will make. as you saw yesterday, the president wants to raise taxes on the wealthy. that's one way to go in terms of getting the deficit down. we've got to remember that this whole fiscal cliff has changed the subject from full employment and jobs which is what the president went on to deficit reduction. and our economists are saying growing the economy creating jobs ought to be the most important priority unless we get the economy growing, we're never going to have the deficit down. that's what we were making the case. nobody quite knows what the congress will do in order to avoid the fiscal cliff. they could tamper with medicare and social security, for example. and that could mean changes in the cost of living index for social security beneficiaries. could mean future generations
8:36am
are eligible for medication. that's a hardship for younger people who don't have anything set aside for retirement. it's going to be a big debate here. and i think the members of congress ought to look at what the voters said in the election. they didn't want cuts to social security and medicare. what they wanted was jobs and investment. and what they wanted was higher taxes on the wealthy. >> can we get there i guess without the president getting what he wants and without some of the deep cuts to some of the entitlement programs that congress is calling for? can we get there? >> i have the view that we could just get rid of the sequestration, the automatic spending and tax increases. and we can just back away from it. >> is that possible to do? >> depends on what the
8:37am
republicans in congress demand. depends on especially in the house of representatives, what kind of an agreement can be made. the president has weighed in with his demand for rolling back the bush tax cuts. and that would do a big part of the job if the republicans agree to it. it's clear that the republicans are also going to be demanding across the board cuts of some kind. and that means people who go to get a pel grant to go to college, small business loans, all kinds of things could be cut across the board. if we cut too deeply, we could put us back into a recession even if we don't call off the fiscal cliff. >> is there any sort of indication that the words of these economists that you are part of this group, that somebody is listening to you. >> the voters definitely were listening. the voters in this election said we would rather
8:38am
raise taxes on the wealthy than do cuts that hurt the economy. it's very clear from all the polling that we've seen and we did our own polling that the voters would like to disengage from this fiscal cliff and really focus on jobs. but there's conservative forces in the congress who really want cut, cut, cut, cut. if we do that then we are risking pushing the economy into a recession even if we don't go over the fiscal cliff. >> complicated issue. thanks for being here and making it understandable for all of us. roger hickey. thank you very much. we'll be right back. ♪

8:49am
and too cold, the color shrink s. it is that 9 degrees these folks have figured out that we maintain. >> he is an award winning master carver. carving for 35 plus years. come from this town no china from parven. how are they discovered? >> their festival takes place end of january, beginning of february and it runs for several weeks. >> if it first started, they would use the ice in the river. you should see, if this is amazing. >> we should go over there. >> i keep saying when this ends i'll go over there. >> i have someone else special. this is our director . and we wanted to give you an idea of

8:51am
time. they have the drawings to look at. some are complicated drawings with measurements in meters , also in feet. and they are taking all these drawings and as i work with them to create the final sculptures with the correct expression, the right color. >> my tools are all covered in ice because he works so fast. myfoxdc.com is our web site. we have a link. this year's ice going on runs through january 6th. more fun coming up. this guy hasn't stopped since we told him to go. back to you all in the studio. >> really is amazing. thank you very much. >> stop blaming the salt shaker. turns out more of the salt we
8:52am
take in everyday comes from our favorite foods and we don't even know it. fox medical team joins us now with the sneaky six. i'm afraid to hear this list. >> some of your favorites are on it. we're talking about sodium that is sneaking into our bodies through our favorite foods. people say i don't use the salt shaker. that's not our case. the american heart association says we need to take it down to 1500 milligrams a day. let me show you. the sneaky six. let me show you what we're talking about. do the math yourself. let's start with lunch meet. 1000 milligrams per serving . you can buy the low sodium and you might want to start. now, the bread is what surprised me. 230 milligrams. and these are general numbers but pretty accurate. two slices of toast in the morning, you are up to 460 just with the bread.
8:53am
pizza is a big problem. 760 milligrams per slice. you eat two slices of pizza and you're at your daily allotment of sodium. just after those two slices. soup, canned goods. we talked about that a lot. filled with sodium. 940 milligrams per cup of chicken noodle soup. you sit down and have more than a cup of that. so those are four of the sneaky six. the other two are poultry. oftentimes, poultry is injected full of sodium to be used as a preservative and flavor. and sandwiches. you take your bread, add on lunch meat and cheese and pretty much made yourself a sodium sandwich. that's the big problem. >> very distressing. most of us like to hear we look good for our age. you say there's a real reason to be concerned if you look older than you actually
8:54am
are. tell us about that. >> this is an interesting study done. 11,000 danish men and women. and the study started back in the 70s. looked at these people for 35 years and studied how they aged not just physically but with their appearance. crows feet, counting wrinkles and everything. they found people who have those signs of aging. crows feet, wrinkles around the ears were more likely to have a heart attack or suffer from heart disease. you got to control what you can. but also your doctor should be looking at how well you are aging. that could be a sign of what's happening internally. >> all right. very good to know. thank you very much for the information. we appreciate it. >> thanks, tony. you are looking good by the way. >> thank you, you too. >> we continue to follow breaking news out of maryland. a shooting involving fbi agents
